Tweet Rally Contest

Support your alma mater or favorite turf program in the Tweet Rally!

Once again John Deere will be hosting a Tweet Rally in conjunction with the 2019 Turf Bowl. As in past years, the turf program generating the most tweets containing correct answers to the questions will be crowned the winner of the 2019 Collegiate Spirit Award at the Closing Celebration and collect $1,000 for their school’s turf club.

How it will work:

Starting on January 8, 2019, John Deere will tweet out a series of questions related to golf course management from @JohnDeere. In total, four questions will be asked. See below for the exact dates the questions will be published. The Tweet Rally will close on February 5, 2019, with no more tweets accepted after that date.

Students, faculty, alumni and other supporters should tweet back the correct answer and include a hash tag for your school. Only correct answers will be counted.

You do not need to register a hashtag with GCSAA or John Deere in advance. But to aid the John Deere team in identifying who the tweet should count for, please make your school hashtag very clear. For example, a good hashtag would be #baldwinuniversityturf. An example of a bad hashtag would be #BUturf because there could be other schools with the initials BU, or #wildcatturf because there are several schools with wildcat as a mascot. In addition to the school hashtag, we ask that you also include the hashtags #TurfBowl19 and #GolfIndustryShow.

To summarize, your responding tweet should look something like this: correct answer to the question #baldwinuniversityturf #TurfBowl19 #GolfIndustryShow
